Disturbing Footage Of 8-year-old Arrested And Charged With Murder Of Toddler: Police Report Reveals More Disturbing Details

In a disturbing case of young violence, an 8-year-old boy has been arrested and charged with murder following his beating of a 1-year-old girl who was left in his care. As if that wasn’t bad enough, it was revealed that the baby’s mother had left her daughter unsupervised with several other children to go clubbing with a friend.

The two adults then came home the next morning around 2 a.m. Had Katerra Lewis checked on her child, she would have noticed that little Kelci Lewis was lying unresponsive in her crib. However, Katerra only checked on her daughter a little after 10 in the morning, before calling for an ambulance at 10:30 a.m.

Reports later revealed that Kelci Lewis suffered from severe head trauma and “major internal organ damage” after the 8-year-old who was tasked with taking care of the children ranging from 1 to 7-years-old, had apparently attacked her when she wouldn’t stop crying.

Now, disturbing footage from RYOT has been released of the alleged young boy screaming for his mother as policemen proceed to arrest him. The young boy can be heard screaming apologies and for his mother, who is shown shoving him towards the police. The boy’s mother, though not being charged, was the companion that joined Katerra Lewis for a night out clubbing.

She had left all 5 of her children, ages ranging from 2 to 8-years-old, for a fun time out on the town. Alabama police say that they are still deliberating how they will proceed with the case as the young boy is the youngest ever in the state to be charged with murder.
